Warning: Sexually Violent Content

Students drifting into Valentine Dining Hall last Wednesday night were targets of a hard-hitting poster campaign organized by the Men’s Project in an effort to raise awareness about sexual assault on campus.

Rumors about what will happen for room draw and residential life next year have been spreading like rapid-fire. With stories about how the trailers might once again become first-year dorms to how residential living is going to create more triples and doubles, students are clamoring for answers. Most of the rumors are false, but what is true is that there will be no room for change once the school year starts.

On March 1, Frost Café had its soft opening, fulfilling a long-anticipated addition that hopes to answers calls for food and drink in Frost Library.

Planning for the café started since last spring, while construction began immediately after last semester’s final exams and finished in mid-February. Dining Services then spent time setting up equipment and figuring out staffing, resulting in the March soft opening. However, shortly after spring break, the café hopes to have a grand opening, with more fanfare and possibly with some giveaways.

Economics Professor Brian Bethune received his Masters of Arts in Economics from McMaster Univ. He holds a doctorate in international economics from the Graduate Institute at Univ. of Geneva. He has taught at Concordia Univ. in Montreal, Canada and has experience in commercial banking and macroeconomic consulting.

What brought you to Amherst?

In the past, the College has not had a reputation for expertise in business. Sophomore and AAS (Association of Amherst Students) Senator Jacob Ong hopes to change that.

“Amherst College doesn’t have a tradition of having an enterprise competition, because in the earlier years they believed that maybe enterprise [or]business, didn’t really fit in line with the liberal arts education. [It was] something you’d do after you graduated, not during your time here,” Ong said.

The Campus Challenge Committee will be holding an “Everybody has a Story” week beginning March 5 and ending March 9. This week is part of the committee’s efforts to strengthen campus social cohesion and unity across various dimensions of values and beliefs.
